This week’s header image comes from Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome (MangaGamer), which finished testing this week and now in the sweeping-up-reports stage of production.
VNTS (Visual Novel Translation Status Updates Series) is published each Saturday and brings the latest updates from VN translation projects — both licensed and by fans — from around the net. If you find any errors, or you think a project is missing from this list, please let us know in the comments.
From The Team: Important update for all TL-trackers out there: Sekai Project has decided they are no longer going to maintain a progress tracker. They’ve informed us that their progress updates will be moving to a “video format” — presumably semi-regular videos posted to YouTube, but as far as I know they haven’t given specifics — which obviously throws a wrench in our weekly VNTS workflow. For now, we’re held in abeyance.
As soon as we know more, we’ll let you know how we plan on approaching SP updates. – Tay

Zakabox™ 「This is the place where Zaka occasionally shares his wisdom. Will he show up this week? Will he have anything to say? Only time will tell.」
TAYsteful Thoughts™After begging Decay to tell me everything he could about Nier:Automata, I finally managed to get a copy. It’s great. It’s really great. The music is awesome, and the swordplay-action/shooter gameplay dynamic is a lot of fun. I know that I’ll enjoy mixing up POD programs, but I can’t bring myself to moving away from the bullet program. Holding R1 and unleashing an endless bullet hell while flailing about madly with a sword is pretty addictive. It’s also pretty cool that Yoko Taro is apparently a VNTS fan.
Have a good week, everybody!
Thanks for the VNTS as usual!
One missing translation:
Is that really VNTS worthy?
Imouto Paradise 2 almost here!
Oww YEAH!!!! but they still need to do some beta testing
You missed some MangaGamer updates:
Sorcery Jokers: edit: 81 -> 87%
Maggot Baits: tl 42 -> 45%
I figured these out by looking at the percentages on their update page. (I save their update page every time it updates so I have nice historical data.)
Please enjoy NieR: Automata to the fullest. It’s kinda lenghty but holy cow that storytelling. I’ve rarely ever seen something of that caliber. Also, as you already mentioned, incredibly fun gameplay. Just w8 for the 2nd storyline; it’s only gonna get better. xD
9S and 2B OTP! Plus I really enjoy seeing Emir again.
Glory to VNTS !
This week VNTS Review, and sorry for being late here. Enjoy.
By the way, there’s no much that I could talk for this week other than good job to Mangagamer there.
Final Overdrive VN? Are they closing down?
I hope I am just misunderstanding.
The implication is that they may be shutting down after this.
